Google Nexus 6 spotted in the wild

Google Nexus 6 spotted in the wild

Google’s upcoming Nexus 6 handset has been spotted in the wild, after a tech fan snapped a picture of it being used by someone we're assuming is a Google employee on their daily commute.

Leave aside the fact that taking pictures of someone using their phone on the way home from work as a wee bit odd, and this has all the makings of a classic pre–release leak.

The device appears to be pretty expansive, up to 6 inches, backing up previous rumours that the Nexus 6 is going large in a bid to take on the likes of Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 and the new iPhone 6 Plus.

The Motorola–made phone also appears to have a central headphone jack at the top of the screen, with volume and power buttons halfway down the bezels to make it easier to use one–handed.

Interestingly, it also seems to be running Android L, the latest version of Google's operating system.

How do we know? The navigation keys at the bottom of the screen match the smaller ones seen in preview editions of the OS.

There's no word yet on a Nexus 6 release date. However, previous rumours have suggested we could see it up for grabs from Google Play as soon as November.
